ADNAN OKTAR: This is a war of love. If we show our brothers that we love them more, than it will be over. It is all about love. If they talk with an official and arrogant tone of voice and slight them and say, “We are the statesmen who command you, your commanders have come” that would be very bad; but if they say, “Your servants have come. Your brothers who are also your servants have come, your Muslim brothers have come. You are perfect Muslims. You’re the descendants of Salāh ad-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb (Saladin) and Bediüzzaman” then the PKK cannot obtain any results. It is all about love.

ADNAN OKTAR: Anyone could commit a sin. Anyone could do wrong. It is wrong to consign [them] to perdition. They are also Muslim. They are also our brothers. If he did it, he must repent. Allah, insha’Allah, forgives those who repent. Muslims must be forgiving and merciful. If we damn everyone who did wrong, there would not be any human being left on the face of the Earth.
Those who steal, who rob or steal, all of them: After all, these are human beings. We will pray for them. We will pray that Allah corrects them and gives them faith. We will strive for their well-being. If they did something wrong, they can do time in jail but they would never cease to be a Muslim. They can do three years or five years time in jail, no matter how long. They can be released from prison but they are still Muslims. They perform their prayers and become a person useful to Islam and Muslims.

ADNAN OKTAR: In any case, he must pray for goodness. If a man stole something, we can’t say, “We hope that his house burns to the ground.” We can’t consign him to perdition. He is put on trial according to the law. Even if he goes to prison, we would like him to perform his prayers and learn about Islam. We need to win people over. Even if he is a person who committed evil deeds, Almighty Allah says, “Be good to those who do evil to you and you will see that they will become your friends.” It is a very well- known verse, and Muslims apply this in their lives day and night.

ADNAN OKTAR: No one is defending graft. No one ever could. Is Mr. Tayyip saying, “Yes, I am defending graft”? On the contrary, he is confronting the situation. This is his top priority ever since he came to office; stopping corruption and graft. There could be people from his family, relatives and acquaintances and such who have committed crimes and in the future this could happen also. But it would be wrong to blame the government for this.
